PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain must find a way to eradicate the sloppy errors that keep resurfacing to stand any chance of winning the Champions League. Josh Mauro Jersey .Tuesdays scrappy 2-2 home draw with unheralded Ludogorets meant that PSG qualified in second place in Group A -- two points behind Arsenal, which won 4-1 away to Swiss side Basel.To guarantee top spot, PSG needed to beat a team that had not won any of its previous five group games. Instead, the French club needed an equalizer from winger Angel Di Maria in the second minute of injury time to avoid a hugely embarrassing defeat.Within moments, club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi made it clear his players are falling well short of expectations.First place was our target (and) we were first before the match, he said on beIN Sports television. Were very disappointed with the result and the quality of our performance. I was expecting more from the players.It was Al-Khelaifi who took the shock decision to fire coach Laurent Blanc in the summer, despite Blanc winning back-to-back domestic trebles. Al-Khelaifis reasoning was that Blanc fell short in Europe, with PSG going out in the quarterfinals for the fourth straight season.He replaced Blanc with Unai Emery, who guided Sevilla to three straight Europa League titles.Yet PSG is no better in attack than last season, and defending has got worse.Of course I am worried, Emery said. The team is conceding a lot of goals at the moment.Dutch forward Virgil Misidjan scored in the 15th minute and Brazilian forward Wanderson made it 2-1 in the 68th, shortly after Edinson Cavani had leveled for PSG.PSGs shortcomings at the back are too glaring for a team hoping to win Europes biggest club trophy.Following a mistake by midfielder Thiago Motta, Misidjan headed the Bulgarian league leaders in front and PSGs players were jeered off at halftime.Cavani equalized in the 61st with an overhead kick from close range after Ludogorets had failed to clear Di Marias cross from the right. It was Cavanis sixth goal of the campaign so far and the Uruguay striker appears full of confidence.The defense is not, having leaked goals in a 3-0 loss away to Montpellier in the French league last weekend.Brazil defender Marquinhos clumsily lost possession when receiving a throw-in. He turned his back on play, allowing Brazilian Jonathan Cafu to steal the ball off him and burst down the left, before pulling it back to Wanderson to finish with a low drive.PSG beat Basel 3-0 in its previous home game but it was far more difficult than the result suggested, with Basel missing several chances.This time, Ludogorets punished PSGs mistakes to secure third place -- a point above Basel -- and a spot in the Europa League.Nobody should underestimate us in the Europa League, Ludogorets midfielder Svetoslav Dyakov said.There was no excuse for the sloppiness that led to Ludogorets opener from a player of Mottas experience.The 34-year-old Italy international, who has played for Barcelona and Inter Milan, committed the most basic of errors when he failed to look up properly as he passed out from the edge of the penalty area, hoping to find winger Hatem Ben Arfa.The pass was easily intercepted and the ball quickly fed to left back Natanael, who scored when Ludogorets lost 3-1 at home to PSG in September. Natanaels curling cross from the left found Misidjans downward header.At least PSG was still creating chances.Center back Thiago Silva headed against the post in the 35th following a corner, and moments later Di Marias shot from 25 meters out drew a leaping save from goalkeeper Vladislav Stoyanov.Silva hit the woodwork again in the second half before Di Marias goal, which was set up by left back Layvin Kurzawa -- one of three substitutes introduced in the last 10 minutes.By then, Emery had left it too late.Considering the gulf in funding between the sides -- PSG has invested heavily in players since Qatari investors QSI took charge in June 2011 -- PSGs performance was way below par.There are no excuses, midfielder Blaise Matuidi said. We must be aware that we need to do better. Justin Bethel Jersey . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. Karlos Dansby Jersey . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. LINCOLN, Neb. -- Finally, Brad Simpson can call himself a scholarship player at a big-time football school. Its taken him four years, and hes run up student-loan debt into the tens of thousands of dollars. With one season to play, he says his walk-on experience at Nebraska has been worth every penny.Derek Foster also walked on at Nebraska. He never earned a scholarship. In fact, he never played a down in his five years. He says he, too, got his moneys worth.With the start of classes across the country, freshman walk-on players are hitting practice fields to round out rosters and chase dreams. A lot of them turned down scholarships from lower-division schools and are challenging themselves to see if they can hack it in Division I. Their hopes are to become significant contributors and get a scholarship.The reality is that most will transfer or quit. In fact, 15 of the 20 walk-ons who entered Nebraska with Foster in 2010 did just that. Foster never considered it.Im a small-town kid who grew up in Nebraska. There was one team I watched, and one team only, and that was the Huskers, said Foster, whos from Elm Creek, population 934, and graduated in 2014. To have the opportunity to walk through the tunnel and step on the field was a win in itself there. People always ask if I regret it that I didnt play a single down when I could have gone to a D-II school, had a scholarship and started right way. The answer: I dont have a single regret.Walk-ons always have been part of college football. Nebraska was among the first programs to make a point of seeking out prospects who might not be talented enough to merit a scholarship but could help the team.Nebraskas rosters regularly numbered 175-200 into the early 2000s. Stricter enforcement of Title IX, which requires equitable opportunities for male and female athletes, has led to a reduction in squad sizes. The Huskers now cap their roster at about 140, with 85 of them being scholarship players. That means Nebraska must be more selective when it comes to walk-ons.Except for having to pay for tuition, room and board, walk-ons are treated the same as scholarship players. Theyre given the cost-of-attendance stipend, a laptop and Adidas gear, and they have access to the academic support and life skills programs.Still, from 2008 to 2015, 80 of the 153 walk-ons (53 percent) left before completing their eligibility. But 2012 brought one of the best walk-on classes in program history, with 10 of the 22 earning scholarships, and at least three will be starters this season.Director of high school relations Kenny Wilhite estimated 85 percent of Nebraska walk-ons had scholarship offers from lower-division programs. Walk-ons from in-state will pay about $20,000 this year for tuition, room and board; for out-of-state walk-ons its about $35,000.This is a great institution. You have that Nebraska degree, and it goes a long way, Wilhite said, but its still tough to sell when kids have scholarship offers.Simpson, from the Omaha suburb of Ralston, said he had to think long and hard about saying no to offers of partial scholaarships from Division II Nebraska-Kearney and Northwest Missouri State and saying yes to the walk-on opportunity presented by the former Nebraska staff. John Brown Jersey. The son of an office worker and retired electrician, Simpson estimated his student-loan debt at $80,000 to $90,000.Every time the email comes, I dont look at it, Simpson said of his loan statements. Its all an investment. If I ever think about the money, I just say put in your time, put in your money and it will all pay off -- the education, the experience, the connections.Simpson, part of that stellar 2012 walk-on class, worked 40 hours a week at an Omaha supermarket the summer following his senior year of high school. Meanwhile, the incoming scholarship players spent that summer on campus training with the returning players and adjusting to campus.Simpson said it was intimidating being around the scholarship players at first, but he never felt looked-down upon. A linebacker, he spent his first year playing on the scout team and has become a key member of special teams the last three years.Coach Mike Riley told Simpson a little over a week ago that he had done enough to earn a scholarship this season.It meant the world, he said. Ever since I got here, that was the biggest accomplishment I could have. For me to reach my goal like that, its not overwhelming but a big feeling of accomplishment, that I proved to myself I could do this.Simpson is on track to graduate with a communications degree in December and begin a career selling medical equipment.Im not leaving this place having regrets, he said.Foster certainly had none. Nebraska-Kearney put together an attractive scholarship offer and was persistent, but Foster couldnt turn down the Huskers when he picked up the phone on Jan. 27, 2010 -- his birthday -- and assistant coach Barney Cotton was on the line asking him to walk on.Foster had no academic scholarship to offset costs. His parents, who own the grocery store in Elm Creek, were able to pay his way.Those long days of conditioning, weightlifting and serving as practice meat never paid off with playing time. The closest he got was in a 2012 blowout of Idaho State. He was set to go in late in the game on the kickoff unit. Unfortunately, the Huskers never scored again, so it didnt happen. Now hes a financial planner in Lincoln.I did everything I could while I was there, Foster said. I would have loved to have gotten in and contributed on game day rather than just practice. That wasnt my calling. People say, `How in the heck did you stick it out for five years and never play a down? You hear that and ask yourself if youre wasting your time.That whole time, it was a life lesson, too. Just going through it and having the perseverance to keep going and keep working hard and saying, `Yeah, if I get in, great; if not, I know Im making the guy to my left and right better. Thats the mentality I took.---AP college football website: Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Stitched Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL China NFL Jerseys Cheap' ' '
